    hello all, this is my first post to this forum.
    My mom is currently thinking of switching to a mac. She feels more
    at home with a Japanese interface and so I told her she could install
    OS X in Japanese even if she bought the iMac (she's thinking of getting
    an iMac) here in NY.
    The problem is the keyboard. Does anyone know if there's a store
    anywhere in the US that sells an Apple Pro Keyboard with the Japanese
    key layout? I know you can enter Japanese with a normal US keyboard
    but my mom would like to have a Japanese keyboard if at all possible.
    I tried all the online stores, googled for it, looked on eBay.
    I tried asking a guy at the local genius bar and he said he couldn't think
    of a way to get a Japanese keyboard normally through Apple. Tried
    calling 1-800-MY-APPLE and they told me the same thing.
    The only solution I can come up with is to order from a store in Japan
    (which when shipping is included would be well over $130) or wait
    until a friend has the chance to go to Japan (have no clue when that
    will be)
    Thanks in advance!

    also check www.users-side.com. They have a store in NYC, and they have Japanese keyboards starting @ 20 dollars.
